Last toured Autumn 2018
Co-production with Rene Baker
The Frog and the Princess is a poignant re-telling of the Brothers Grimm tale that will entertain and delight family audiences.
This exquisitely manipulated and humorous puppetry performance explores the meeting of cultures and what happens when a Princess deems a Frog unworthy of being her friend, just because of what he is.
Our main characters undergo an emotional journey from rejection to friendship they discover that deep down they are not so very different after all.
